  • Dear David and Nancy,

    Your parents were everything that is good about people. They were treasured friends to Mom and Dad, loving parents to you, and served our church and schools as few others could. I don’t know what to say beyond that, except that we love you and are grateful that the two of you have stayed such good friends with Mary, Mark, and me. We are surely thinking about you in this most difficult of times.

  • Our sincere sympathy to the Miller family. We taught in the Marion City Schools for many years. Your father hired me many years ago. You all will be in our thoughts and prayers.
    Fred and Margie Saull
